Giving your

Giving your "All"

I thought for sure I would be writing about death this week since I just lost another close friend, and in a way, I am, but I want to focus on the empaths and on why and how important it is to save enough energy for yourself. I know it’s easy to get so caught up in caring for others and seeing to their needs that you forget to replenish yourself, and you let your root chakra get out of balance. Sometimes this happens when you’re in a situation where your normal path to replenishment is blocked, or you just don't feel you have time.  I do understand all of that, but I’ve also seen what can happen when you give all your energy to other people.G...

A Spell to Draw Holiday Money

A Spell to Draw Holiday Money

Bellisana 09/09/2018 0
No matter how you celebrate Samhain and Yule, when you throw in Thanksgiving, fall is generally fairly expensive. We have a new moon coming up on the 9th, so casting a money spell at this time can give you a good start for a prosperous fall. The waxing moon is always good for creating things that grow, and that includes wealth and prosperity. This spell can help you boost your prosperity in the coming year as well if you use it at the beginning of the year. When I do it this time of year, I usually keep it fairly simple, and holiday focused.Thursday is associated with wealth, so a Thursday during the waxing moon is your best time. You will ne...

Handfasting

Well, after 5 years, my roommate and I have decided to get married!!!!  I’m excited. He’s a wonderful man, and I don’t know what I’d do without him.  My best friend since junior high school is not only standing up with me, she’s also making my dress. I am truly blessed.Naturally, this has led me to do some refresher reading about the history of handfasting and the meanings behind it. Handfasting dates to the ancient Celts and involves the wrapping of the intended’s hands with a cord and tying a knot. Sounds simple enough, and overall, it is, but you can choose to use all four hands, right hands, left hands, or one of each, depending on what i...

Mars in Slow Motion

Mars in Slow Motion

Aeslin 29/07/2018 0
With Mars in retrograde from June 26 - August 27, it's a good time for introspectiion and planning. As Mars energy turns within, the general forcast might read "High chance of self criticism with outbursts of anger storms."  Understanding that Mars in retrograde is a time of caution and planning, rather than assertiveness, we can get through it. It is even possible to benefit from using this introspective time to notice, accept, and allow the annoyances and frustrations of waiting to teach us their valuable lessons. Slow down with Mars' orbit, and take advantage of any "down time" that seems to be a delay in progress. Before anger or impatien...
